I met God in the morning
When the day was at its best,
And His presence came like sunrise,
Like a glory in my breast

All day long the Presence lingered,
All day long He stayed with me,
And we sailed in perfect calmness
O’er a very troubled sea.

Other ships were blown and battered;
Other ships were sore distressed;
But the winds that seemed to drive them
Brought to us a peace and rest.

Then I thought of other mornings,
With a keen remorse of mind,
When I, too, had loosed the moorings
With the Presence left behind.

And I think I know the secret,
Learned from many a troubled way:
You must seek God in the morning
If you want Him through the day.

~~Ralph Cushman
